Ok so this LJ thing is new to me and well, I'm old but not that old that I start reading actual directions. Hell, my work experience consisted of trial and error. Yeah, 4 years of college, fluency in two foreign languages, ability to argue politics and world history (mostly English) with myself and what do I do? Go and get a job in Finance! Well, technically it's called Business Management but it's still numbers, people. I grew up loathing numbers. Oops, tangent over. Sorry.

Anyway, I hate reading big thick books that tell me how to turn on or off something. I usually start messing around with it and eventually I'll figure it out. Of course, all I can generally do is turn something on and off but I can program my DVD recorder, set a clock on anything electronic and I did manage to set up my surround sound speakers so that sound comes in well, in surround. Sorry, tangenting again. Anyway again, I'm slowly figuring out this LJ thing. I'm trying to figure out cuts and I've been changing what my journal looks like. It's kind of fun and I feel so twenty-something.

When I started my LJ in January I kept repeating to myself, "html is your friend." Didn't actually work, but, you know, I tried.

The cleverest thing I have come up with is to post things privately until I get the formatting right. That way I can't edit things 57 times. (Only works on your LJ, not other places like GF)

Another thing I did was make a test post, also private, with correctly formatted LJ-cut and cut text. Then I can go into edit mode, copy and paste the correct code, replace the copy and cut text, and it doesn't take all frickin' night to do it.

Good luck!
